The Commander of the Naval Combat Axis, in the operation of the Volcano of Anger, Brigadier “Reda Issa” described the targeting of Hifter militia of the port of Tripoli, as “cowardly action.”
Issa confirmed, in a statement to Arraed, that the army forces responded to the sources of the fire that targeted the port, adding that any attempt to target the port would be a decisive and severe.
Issa said that the targeting was expected from militias that kill civilians and target state installations, and claim to have achieved field victories.
He refuted the allegations of Hifter media that they had targeted a Turkish naval vessel in the port of Tripoli, indicating that they targeted merchant ships with goods belonging to Libyan businessmen which suffered significant material damage.
Issa explained that they had documented the crime of targeting the port and adding it to the war crimes file carried out by the invading and aggressor militias since the 4th of April.
In a related context, he said, that the number of reconnaissance patrols carried out by their forces since the fourth of April until now in the region from Ras Jadeer to Sirte, reached about 700 sorties.
It is worth noting that Hifter militias targeted last Tuesday the sea port of Tripoli, killing 3 people and material damage in the cargo containers in the port.
